Description: Icarus

South African detective Benny Griessel used to drink to keep the tide of tragedy at bay. Now he has been dry for 602 days. But the waters are rising again, battering his defences just when his unique skills are most needed by his team. Celebrity internet entrepreneur Ernst Richter is missing. His company, Alibi, supplies cover stories to facilitate affairs - and plenty of people have threatened to kill him, from jealous husbands to religious extremists. So when Richter's body is found in the sand dunes outside Cape Town, the authorities brace themselves for a media frenzy. The Police Service need their best people. They need Benny. Sober. Meanwhile, a young man contacts a Cape Town lawyer. His story of family strife and cruel luck is intertwined with the history of the wine business in South Africa - but how is it connected to the murder of Ernst Richter? Page-turning suspense and one of the great detectives of contemporary crime fiction combine to make Icarus a novel of deep humanity and driving power, translated from Afrikaans by K. L. Seegers.
